, if not impossible to defend. that's why mitt kept him on the defensive all the time, facts are stubborn things. he could not defend the record that he has, whether it be the effects of the stimulus package. i thought dad dodd frank was explained by mitt better than anybody i have ever seen before. of course, the view that president obama seems to think that government is more efficient and does things better than the private sector, which is all about this choice that people can make if they want to choose an alternative to traditional medicare. finally, you know, you notice that a president obama did not respond to the $761 billion taken out of medicare. he couldn't. because we tried to put it back in when we were debating obamacare, in fact, it was my amendment to put it back in and it went down on a party-line vote. >> greta: you know, while we sort of watch this -- obviously, politics vis very serious and there is a drama and intrigue to it. one of the things that was not discussed last night and which is really serious in and is ongoing is the sequestration. i realize there is only 90 minutes
the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
of a sudden has to be on the defensive, and he doesn't handle it very well. >> there were several things that hart didn't handle well, but that's another story. >> he was reeling. we came right back in with another punch, which was the red phone. >> the most awesome, powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> again, they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was style, not substance. >> vote as if the future of the world is at stake. >> decades later -- >> it's 3:00 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep, but there's a phone in the white house and it's ringing. >> hillary clinton's consultants used the same theme to attack barack obama. >> who do you want answering the phone? >> in this case it was barack obama, because he answered the red phone at 3:00 in the morning. said, gary heart answered the red phone at 2:00 in the morning. did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> today's ads are more likely to be direct attacks. >> barack obama, what a disappointment. >> americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing
american people he was up for the job. second thing is that romney was aggressive, obama was defensive. the president was always on the defense. part because he didn't seem to have a plan for what he wanted to achieve tonight but there is romney also being aggressive and saying he gets criticized for tax break for oil companies and responldz to the president saying wait a minute. i'm not in favor of that but just remember you gave five times to green energy company that's went belly up so. this is a very good about zit ziding obama but questioning him and pulling issues back to him. this is a the third item, tone. president obama came across as irritated and looking down. never looking up. and this is romney looking at the president, just a wrong tone. romney was president yismt had humor, who knew he had a sense of humor, i've got five boys i'm used to hearing people say things that aren't true and hoping i'll believe them. you're entitled to your own place and house but not your own facts. he was pretty darn funny. and there is a tone of bipartisanship. in 2008 barack obama did a goo
